Well, they say that the elderly don't get the same treatment as younger patients with the same ailments.
My grandma had cancer and got all this blood from the hospital...and after a while she was cancer free. But then, she got leukemia and died a quick nasty death...Was it from all the blood she was given...or from the original cancer? Of course, it isn't like the hospital blood is labeled "blood" and "better blood"...
There are four different types of Leukemia.
acute myeloid leukemia
chronic myeloid leukemia
acute lymphocytic leukemia
chronic lymphocytic leukemia
Leukemia is different from other types of cancer.
"Acute" means that the leukemia develops quickly.
Cancer patients need blood product transfusions to replace components of the blood when there are not enough in the body.
Chemotherapy can effect white blood cells and platelets.
Blood is given depending on blood cell counts. If surgery was done or if the patient is bleeding.
